Non Weigh in Wednesday 19: Baggy trousers

Non-Weigh In Wednesday

 

I really must get better at putting together my Weigh In Wednesday posts, as it has been another couple of weeks since I last posted one.

It’s been a good couple of weeks for non-scale victories.

Loose trousers

So we all know about my work trouser saga, and I haven’t resolved it yet. As a result, my bum has got properly baggy, but I hadn’t really noticed how much until I caught sight of myself in the mirror at a conference today during a loo break.

It’s all well and good, but the bottom of my trousers are really scuffed up now. I need to make it my mission in my week off to find a new pair of work trousers. I’m not really complaining. I think it’s actually kinda cool (though doesn’t look great, so yeah… Need to get it sorted!).

People noticing

Mum, Dad and me travelled to Hampshire on Sunday to see my sister to go out for lunch for her birthday. It was really lovely to see her (as it always is), especially as I haven’t seen her since Easter. She was very complimentary and said she could see a real difference. I was a bit concerned about what I was going to eat, as we were going to a pub. I picked a salad, and I swear it was one of the best salads I have had in ages. I’m now looking for roquito peppers, as they were in the salad and they may be my new favourite thing.

Our catering account manager has also said she can see a massive difference every time she sees me. I swear she is my favourite person at work sometimes!

Yoga

I went to my Moving into Mysore class again on Monday, and really enjoyed it. I think mentally, I’m feeling in a bit of a better place. I have always struggled with downward dog and normally revert to puppy pose instead. This week, I actually managed some downward dog. I was pretty pleased! I am feeling it in my hamstrings today though.

In other yoga news, I went to a wellbeing conference for work today and was introduced to laughter yoga. It is probably the most bizarre thing I have ever experienced, but it was really fun. I hadn’t heard of it before today. Very sadly, apparently while children smile in excessive of something crazy like 400 times a day, adults are lagging way behind. It’s the same for laughter, so the idea of laughter yoga is to get back in touch with your inner (smiley, giggly) child – going around and clapping and saying “ho ho ho, he he he”, greeting people like you’re really excited to see them and are long lost friends, and all sorts. It was completely random, but good fun.

Days ahead

It’s going to be a busy few days ahead. My meal prep has been okay this week, and I just need to make sure that it continues for the next few days. I have made a couple of really good salads, eggy muffins for breakfast, and pulled stuff out of the freezer for tea. It definitely takes the stress out of it all.

It’s Blogtacular on Friday, and I got my photowalk instructions this morning (woohoo!). There was a link to making the best of a photowalk on that email, and one piece of advice was to be prepared to be involved in the actual photos. Normally I would have though “urgh” as I really felt uncomfortable in front of the camera. At the moment, the thought of this doesn’t bother me at all. This is quite a revelation for me!

There’s a few more non-scale victories to add to the list! It’s all good!

Have you ever heard of laughter yoga? Would you ever give it a go?

  1. I have heard of laughing yoga and think it sounds bizarre but actually a great idea. People need to relax more and be open to laughing more often. I try and laugh each day (it helps reading nonsense on the Internet I must say. Buzzfeed I love you).
    Glad your trousers are getting looser! Great victory for definite!

  2. Nice work! I have not heard of laughing yoga, although I saw a Karl Pilkington thing in America (of course) about laughter groups. It is good for the soul after all.

  3. This is a really positive post. I’m glad it’s all going so well for you
